General Automation Lab Technologies, Inc.

Innovation Partner

General Automation Lab Technologies, Inc. is transforming microbiome research and microbial product development with our innovative high throughput microbiology research platform. With greater appreciation of the incredible diversity that exists in the microbial world there is an urgent need for new tools to understand and explore the microbiome. GALT is currently focused on two core applications: 1) cultivating microbes that are difficult or impossible to cultivate using current technologies, and 2) screening microbiomes, strain collections or engineered microbial populations.



Loop Genomics

Innovation Partner

Loop Genomics is a DNA sequencing company with a vision to provide products that deliver the most complete and accurate drug development microbiome data. Loop technology meets the critical need for high-resolution phylogenetic data using long-read sequencing and single molecule abundance quantification, with an innovative approach that transforms existing short-read sequencing machines. Our long-read single-molecule microbiome sequencing products enable drug development R&D pipelines to discover previously inaccessible metagenomic information at unprecedented scale, while leveraging their existing sequencing systems and workflows.




Innovation Partner

CoreBiome is a genomics platform company focused on accelerating discovery for customers in the pharmaceutical, agriculture, and research communities, to unleash the translational potential of the microbiome. The Company’s proprietary BenchMark™, BoosterShot™, and Core Analysis™ platforms provide a rapid and high-resolution measurement and interpretation of microbial diversity. The recently launched BoostArray™platform provides an ideal method for the characterization of strain libraries. CoreBiome was founded in 2016 based on intellectual property originating from the University of Minnesota. The founding team has collective experience processing and analyzing hundreds of thousands of microbiome samples.
